Our all new CT45 Carbon Clinchers - a game changer in the Planet X wheel range. They're the fastest, most aerodynamic and downright stealthy wheels we've ever produced. You won't find a higher performance wheel at this price.

Why the Fat 45? well, these are 23mm wide rims (our other ones are 19.5mm) Giving you a wider, shorter tyre contact patch, reducing the rolling resistance in the process. The fat rim produces a more rounded tyre shape, that when coupled with the shorter toroidal rim means a dramatic advancement in aerodynamic performance. This is most apparent when encountering the dreaded sidewind; the CT45 stays balanced, meaning the side force on the front part of the wheel is equal to that on the back, giving you far greater stability .

These wheels are as lightweight as you'd expect too, weighing in at 825g for the front, 976g for the rear. Not only are they good on the climbs, they will be lethal on the flat.

Of course, you want to know what this all means in the real world. Well, over the distance of an Ironman cycling section, the Fat 45's will save you 3 minutes compared to your old alloy's...

  • 23mm rim width - meaning less rolling resistance
  • 45mm deep section carbon rim
  • Internal rim width: 19mm
  • Toroidal rim shape leads to vastly superior aerodynamics
  • The alloy braking surface gives superb braking performance
  • EN and DIN tested - exceed all worldwide standards

  • Weight (without skewers): Front - 845g, Rear - 996g
  • Maximum rider weight: 100Kg

    I am really satisfied! Really good value for money. The only problem I had was that I ordered without logos. I suppose the no logo version was sold out, so I got wheels with logo stickers removed and it was quite some work to remove all the glue...

    There are holes around the spokes that allow water to get into the hollow interior of the carbon part of the wheel. I thought this was badly designed.

    Fantastic customer service from Planet X. I had an issue with one of my Carbon Clincher Wheels i brought over a year ago. A couple of cracks had appeared within the rim where the spokes are mounted. I sent the wheel back to Planet X and they sorted a replacement wheel out very quickly. The service cannot be faulted.

    Great wheels and so light especially compared to my old Shimano cosmos. The bike feels more responsive and much quicker getting up to speed and staying there. They sound great at over 20 mph cutting through the air.

    Got the wheels a couple of days after ordering. The quality of the packaging was excellent as were the wheels with no sign of any damage. Great quality product and the price was second to none. Are they a company i'd use again? Absolutely yes without hesitation.

    I bought some Planet X Carbon Clinchers just under 2 years ago. The rims had cracked so I returned them. The service was excellent, there were no questions asked about how the damage occurred ( Although I was very careful and have never crashed) and within 3 days I had returned the wheels and had replacements sent out. I was back out on the road before the weekend. I ca't thank Planet X enough + the new wheels are even slicker than the previous set. Amazing wheels and superb service.

HAD my bike serviced the machanic did not tighten the handlebar stem up properly got 5 miles from home had to ring my wife to bring my alen key so I could tighten the stem up.
